MotorheadUtz's comment does seem odd given the well known "tunability" of turbo engines, although long-term durability on a highly-tuned engine would have to be a major consideration for the manufacturer. Maybe the limitation is more due to the torque limitation of the manual transmission. As I noted previously, the GT4 and GTS engines share the same max torque figure of 420Nm. Surely, no coincidence? Jeff
BJ Innes Jeff, The PDK versions of the 718 Cayman GTS have 430Nm of torque. Plus 10Nm over the manual gearbox cars. Similarly on the 981 GTS PDK, 380Nm against 370Nm for the manual versions. Brian
ralphmusicBJ InnesRalph, The respective weights I have posted are from the handbook Kerb Weight DIN values. They will likely differ from your definitive corner weighting measurements, although I would expect the values to fall within the range quoted in the handbook. Brian Brian, Understand but I was taken by how little my weight exceeded handbook lowest weight given all the electric motors and PDK I have. Anyway I’ll revert when I get home.

Brian I don't think you're right there Brian, the 981 has the same torque for both gearboxes as far as I know. Only the 718 models differ as they've hit the manual gerabox torque limit. Do you have a source for the 370Nm figure? Wikipedia lists both the same for 981s: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_981 EDIT: sorted it. Boxster GTS has 330PS and 370Nm for both gearboxes, Cayman GTS has 345PS and 380Nm for both.
Motorhead....Regarding the latest injection technology on the GT3 Spyder - just part of the manufacturer's continuous development process? Jeff
981TCHas anyone been asked for a deposit at a OPC yet?
nwc123Congrats! Spec can still be changed mind you. Ralph - I've gone for something like this: https://www.porsche-code.com/PLG2YVV3 Any comments or criticisms welcome
981TCLooks good, heres mine , I may have gone a little mad but is similar to my current one https://www.porsche-code.com/PLCAFVJ1
ralphmusic Looks very smart. I gather the blue is a tad lighter than rendered on the configurator; I'm colour blind but even I can see why black calipers are better than red. Have you seen a Gentian Blue car? The one thing some people seem to dislike is the chrome Porsche script on the rear but on a darker colour car it adds some contrast. Do you have a build or lock configuration date? Ralph
